CS221: Algorithms and Data Structures Lecture #3.5 Sorting Takes Priority Steve Wolfman 2011W2 1

Today’s Outline Sorting with Priority Queues, Three Ways 2

Quick Review of Sorts Insertion Sort: Keep a list of already sorted elements. One by one, insert new elements into the right place in the sorted list. Selection Sort: Repeatedly find the smallest (or largest) element and put it in the next slot. Merge Sort: Divide the list in half, sort the halves, merge them back together. (Base case: length  1.) 3

How Do We Sort with a Priority Queue? You have a bunch of data. You want to sort by priority. You have a priority queue. WHAT DO YOU DO? 4 F(7) E(5) D(100) A(4) B(6) insert deleteMin G(9)C(3)

“PQSort” Sort(elts): pq = new PQ for each elt in elts: pq.insert(elt); sortedElts = new array of size elts.length for i = 0 to elts.length – 1: sortedElts[i] = pq.deleteMin return sortedElts 5 What sorting algorithm is this? a.Insertion Sort b.Selection Sort c.Heap Sort d.Merge Sort e.None of these

Reminder: Naïve Priority Q Data Structures Unsorted list: –insert: worst case O(1) –deleteMin: worst case O(n) Sorted list: –insert: worst case O(n) –deleteMin: worst case O(1) 6

Two PQSort Tricks 1)Use the array to store both your results and your PQ. No extra memory needed! 2)Use a max-heap to sort in increasing order (or a min-heap to sort in decreasing order) so your heap doesn’t “move” during deletions. 12
